Until a little more than a decade ago, Ofer Yanai, 45, worked at NDS, a company that makes encryption systems for the television industry. Winning 70,000 shekels ($20,900) on the game show “One Against a Hundred” enabled him to shift gears and study full time for an MBA at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. After graduating, he worked for a while at companies that install solar panels and in 2011 set up his own business, Nofar Energy.
